Have you ever seen the program Extreme Couponing? I’ll never forget the first couple of times we saw it.
That was about many years ago and now I have a basement that looks love a grocery store, however my fiance is obsessed with the process and has a stockpile that takes up nearly a hundred square feet.
Her friends, and I, along with the neighbors tend to think she is a bit obsessed with the process however I have to admit his saved us a lot of currency over the past couple of years. I do not think I’ll have to buy laundry soap for the rest of our life or shampoo for that matter. There are some items that do not ever have coupons so we have to pay full price for them but usually those are larger purchase items; For this reason I was particularly surprised when our fiance told me that she was going to have the HVAC duct in the home cleaned and the Heating and A/C unit inspected for free. I could not imagine that this was a real thing although she had found a coupon online that allowed for this repair to be done, but okay, well it particularly wasn’t a coupon, it was a certificate that was being gave by our local power company to help homeowners conserve energy. The only thing you had to do was agree to participate in a program for the upcoming year that would allow them to monitor and report the amount of energy you are consuming to the federal government! Apparently, based on the amount of consumption savings, the power company could acquire tax credits that would be important to their bottom line. It was worth it for them to offer these Services because they knew that a clean and efficient running Heating and A/C system could save homeowners up to 25% on their overall USge. I had no complication with entering into the program and I was actually proud of our fiance for finding out about these savings to her Extreme Couponing.
